"Your Poor and Huddled Masses"

July 28, 2014


I keep hearing the phase “Give me your poor and huddled masses yearning to breathe free ...” from those who want an open border. I wonder if they know the story of that saying.

It was part of a poem that is inscribed on the Stat­ue of Liberty that welcomed millions of immigrants to our country. Back then, those immigrants had to pass a health exam and have a sponsor. There were no government handouts waiting for the taxpayers to dish out.

Many were sent back on the next boat because they were sick or their sponsor never vouched for them. They also had to complete a process to become citizens of the United States of America.

We still have a system in America to become a U.S. citizen. And it’s not the current policy of flood­ing the borders and expecting to be welcomed with open arms.
